Kontera – Blog monetisation via contextual links
Quick short post. As part of this blogs monetisation experiment, Ive decided to trial Kontera. Visitors will notice that there are double underlined links which feature a little advert when a cursor is placed over an identified link.
Generally, I think they are fairly unobtrusive and most savvy users should notice a differentiation between normal links and these advert type links. An example of a typical ad can be seen below.
Im using the <div class=KonaBody> tag to ensure that its only my blog posts that are affected in this way. I don’t think its right that my commenters comments should be used in this way, so rest assured that whatever you say will not be advertisizied!
I’ll report back in 6 weeks or so and let people know how things progressed.Posted on: 16th May 2007, by : Rob Watts
